But what is the difference between all these types of bras? We are about to explain! With this bra type overview it will be easy to set them apart and choose your favourite bra(s)!
An underwire bra is a bra with underwire below the cups. Because of these wires, this bra type provides extra support and comfort. An underwire bra is suitable for both women with small or large breasts.
Stick on bra
A stick on bra is an adhesive bra without any straps or bra band that can be sticked on your breasts. It’s the perfect bra solution for under garments with a low cut back.
A push-up bra has extra (gel or foam) padding at the bottom of its cups which pushes your breasts towards each other, making them seem bigger and giving you a perfect cleavage. A push-up bra sometimes has removable padding allowing women with bigger breasts to wear this model as well.
A strapless bra is a bra with removable straps making it the perfect bra for under tops and dresses that show off your shoulders. A strapless bra often has a wider bra band which provides the needed support.
A t-shirt bra is a bra with smooth, seamless cups without any lace or other applications. As it is seamless it won’t show under your garments making it the perfect bra to wear underneath tight fitted pieces.
